Something is killing vampires and taking their hearts and with the help of fellow necromancer Goose, Rhiannon tries to discover the perpetrator.
I have had this book on my Kindle for 3 months and in an attempt to clear some books off of my tbr pile before buying any new books, I started this one. I don't know why I waited so long to start reading it. It seemed right up my street but I guess the blurb didn't make it exciting enough for me to start. Oh how I wish I had read it sooner this book is just totally awesome, the blurb doesn't do it justice. Rhiannon is a tough ass loud mouth who doesn't know when to shut up. Coming out with witty put downs and handy with a blade I think she is brilliant and I love her. Rhiannon has had an unhappy childhood with her parents dying when she was a young girl which meant she grew up in an abusive foster home. It is the abuse she lived with that makes her what she is today, mouthy and unable to trust anyone. We eventually do find out what happened to her and it is bad. It was great seeing Rhiannon develop and grow throughout the book both with her necromancer abilities and as a person. Gabriel better known as Disco is a sexy gorgeous master vampire who employs Rhiannon to help find the person or thing that is killing vampires. What I really liked about this book was that the vampires acted as how I believe vampires should behave, intimidating, viscous and manipulative plus they were very hot too. There were lots of supporting characters too, at times I did get a little confused when a name was mentioned and I had to rack my brain to remember where I had met them. The plot is good with lots of action along the way, and I really enjoyed Ms Saares writing. I loved Rhiannon's big mouth and I found it difficult putting this book down. Now for those of you who hate cliff hangers well you are going to hate the ending of this book because there is a massive one. All I can say is thank goodness for Kindles because I am immediately buying the next book The Renfield Syndrome. This has thrown a spanner in the works of clearing my tbr pile before purchasing any new books but to hell with it I HAVE to know what happens next. I would like to give this book 5 stars.
